Reply to "I had a minor heart attack!"

Thanks everyone. I know some folks don't like to talk about their health, but I find it therapeutic.

I do have a BP machine at home, that is why I knew my BP was high, thus me calling 911. I did not want to take any chances. The EMTs gave me something to try and lower the BP, but it did not lower, that's why I ended up in the ER.

They did 2 blood tests over 8 hours, and there was a release of troponin which is an enzyme released when the heart is affected. 

I play volleyball 4 hour a week, plus I swim once a week. My arteries are ok my cholestorol is good (121). Unfortunately, my family history seems to play a big part in regard to my elevated BP. 

I have to lose some more weight, and just eat smarter.
